Detroit News predictions: Bengals at Lions

The Detroit News

James Hawkins, John Niyo, Justin Rogers and Bob Wojnowski of The Detroit News offer predictions for Sunday's Lions-Bengals game at Ford Field (Fox/97.1).

Amani Oruwariye and the Lions play host to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

James Hawkins: Given the way this season has unfolded with the injuries and heartbreaking losses, the Lions are due for a break  and result — to finally go their way. The defense and offense have often been out of sync, but this time around they’ll click when it matters most. The defense will dig deep and get a pivotal stop late, and Jared Goff will make enough throws to put Detroit in position for a last-second field goal. Lions, 20-17
